[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Somers: Art. I, 6-17-1982 by resolution. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 6-17-1982 by resolution]
The Town Board of the Town of Somers does hereby establish a commuter exchange parking area in the following location subject to permissive referendum: Somerstown Shopping Center.
The parking area is for the exclusive and nonassignable use of Somers residents, who are permit holders, on a first-come-first-served basis.
Such use of parking facilities of the town shall be restricted as follows:
A parking permit must be obtained from the Town Clerk.
The permit is valid for one year, running from July 1 to June 30.
Permits will only be issued upon proof of residency in the Town of Somers.
The maximum number of permits issued each year is at the discretion of the Town Board.
The Town Board may issue permits in excess of the maximum number of parking spaces if it sees fit and has no obligation to provide additional space should permit holders not find space available.
The granting of a parking permit by the town does not guarantee to the permit holder that space will be available. Space will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis each day.
Any vehicles parked without a permit or in violation of any applicable rule, regulation or section hereof shall be subject to being towed away at the operator's expense, and such violation shall constitute a traffic infraction within the meaning of § 1800 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law, and any person violating any provision hereof shall be punishable as therein provided.
The permit must be conspicuously displayed through the front windshield.
The Town Police, the State Police or their agents are authorized to have vehicles found without permits towed away.
The town is not obligated to provide security or protection for vehicles parked in the parking area.
The Town of Somers is not liable for any damage or theft of any vehicle, or property therein, parked in the parking area.
Prior to issuing the first permit, the town's liability insurance must be expanded to cover this activity.
